"No Secret" That Crysis Is Coming To PS3

Well, it's back again. There's just no killing a rampant rumor, especially when certain sources continue to claim that it's true.

According to the latest issue of UK gaming magazine, PSW, the statement made is both clear and perhaps somewhat surprising- "it's no secret Crysis is coming to the PS3." Oh yeah? ...since when? The article goes on to say the game won't be a direct port of the PC version, and it will actually be "an almost 50% new game." All of this comes as news to us, but here's the paragraph that has the Internet in a bit of an uproar (source- onAXIS):

"First up, we have Crysis. Now it's no secret that Crysis is coming to PS3 this year. The excitable, hard-worked coders over at Crytek have said as much in many interviews - they've even produced a new, multi-platform engine in readiness - but the real juice here is that it won't be a straight conversion of the PC game. We understand PS3 Crysis will be an almost 50% new game, with many of the original games staff taken off PC Crysis months before release to begin to work on Crysis 2 and a port to PS3 that will include aspects of the sequel - but a new structure, environments, weapons and enemies will feature on PS3. This should be one of the year's biggest console shooters."

Crytek has continually denied that Crysis would ever appear on consoles, although they did say they were planning a PS3 production of some kind. At the time, they said it wasn't Crysis, but something else entirely. Was all that just a cover? Will PS3 owners really get this hot FPS? For now, all of this is nothing more than speculation, but we'll keep a close eye on it; perhaps Crytek will issue an official explanation soon.

Ive been hoping to God this would happen, and hopefully it still will. I played the Crysis demo at a friends house on his pc and it was just incredible, best graphics ive ever seen in any fps, and i can't wait to play it on my projector running on my ps3!

Mmmm, Crysis on PS3. That would be pretty sweet. I don't play games on the PC really as I hate the whole keyboard/mouse thing. I use a PS2 controller with my PC, but even so, I prefer to play on the TV. 73" > 20" lol

you have got to be kiddin me!!! i just spent 1500 bucks on a dam gaming computer just for this game and now it is coming to my ps3?? i am so pissed.

P.S. i have played it and i can't see if it is any better than Resistance nor COD4 gameplay wise, but the graphics speak for themselves...hopefully it will be a PS3 console exclusive, even though i doubt it!!

ya u r right it was hard to play this game with 30 FPS... and i had TWO 8800GT's in SLI...this game is impossible, they must scale it down to run on a PS3, sadly PS3's have only 2cores, yet mine was a quad core and still was sweating while playing...i can feel the computer saying "enough please, enough, i cant take it, AAAAAh"lol...

PS3 has 2 cores? Where you here that? The PS3 has one main PowerPC-based Core running at 3.2ghz with 7 SPE running at 3.2ghz. The cell is designed to act like multiple processors working together or independantly.

Would be interesting to see Crysis on the PS3 - the graphics are intense and if the PS3 could handle it then...

I just spent £1600 on a custom built gaming laptop.
PSW did a 5 page preveiw of Bioshock but that was never for the PS3. They do say its going to be only 50% of the original, that doesn't sound like they've made it up so maybe they got some inside info?
